Tasting Notes

Perfumed black cherry and raspberry are shaded by darker tones of underbrush, wild mint, leather and granite in this full-bodied but vibrantly balanced red. A blend of Grenache (50%) and Syrah (50%) sourced from clay and sandy soils, it’s fruity but cut by a mineral edge too. The finish is marked by firm, structured tannins.

Food Pairings

Herb-rich dishes, red meat, hearty stews

Third Party Reviews

“A very dark and flowing style this year with large amount of tannins, really shot through with thick, very ripe tannins. Hard to judge – it’s thick, but not drying, very fruity, and very dark in fruit. Likely to be a long-lived Poète.” 92 points, Matt Walls, Decanter
